Lyrics

Waist Deep and Wasted

Written By: Jerry Thibodeaux

I jump in the water/ I dont go real far
I get no DWI / not drinking in my car

I dont drift away/ i stay close to the shore
when my beer goes empty/ i wade in and get more
(chorus)
'cause my cooler and the music
stay in plain sight
I'm waist deep and wasted
and I'm feeling allright

working on my tan/ the sun is shining down
my legs stay pale/ rest of me nice and brown

I'm swaying with the current/ if I'm too drunk to walk
no chance of getting hurt/ if I stumble and fall

the bar in the pool/ is in the shallow end
'cause you cant tread water/ with drinks in your hand
(bridge)
on the river/ or in the creek
at the lake/ or down on the beach
(chorus)
my cooler and the music
stay in plain sight
I'm waist deep and wasted
and I'm feeling allright

Count

Written By: Jerry Thibodeaux

you can't count the snowflakes / that cover a mountain top
and the ocean holds/ just how many raindrops?

you can't count the straw/ in a bale of hay
or the rays of sun / that make a brighter day
(chorus)
but there is something/ I can keep track of
who gets my heart/ who gets my love
I won't lose count/ or get confused
I keep it simple/ I just count you

you cant count the stars/ on a moonlit night
or the blessings/ you'll get in your life

you can't count the tears/ that show you my pain
or my thoughts of you/ when you are away
(chorus)
but there is something/ I can keep track of
who gets my heart/ who gets my love
I wont lose count/ or get confused
I keep it simple/ I just count you
I wont get in trouble like I used to do/ I keep it simple
I just count you

My Own Worst Enemy

Written By: Jerry Thibodeaux

I'm a loaded gun/ I'm a loose cannon
and I'm packing....misery

I've got self inflicted pain/ I've got nothing to gain
I do damage like TNT

Doors are all closed/ there ain't no windows
I'll blast a hole in the wall

Getting out of the funk/ clear my mind of the junk
my fights with no one at all
(chorus)
I've got no one to turn to/ I used to have you
Now I'm a one man team
Friend or foe/ I don't always know
'cause I'm my own worst enemy

I'm gonna take my shot/ my fuse is short and hot
Flying embers burn my skin

I'm all in this war/ and every battle so far
Comes from conflict within

When the smoke clears/ after all these years
I will wave the white flag

I feel like giving up/ nothing cheers me up
Not money or things I have
(chorus)
I've got no one to turn to/ I used to have you
Now I'm a one man team
Friend or foe/ lately I don't know
'cause I'm my own worst enemy
